Tip

Upgrading Windows XP


Most users of Windows XP are using Windows XP service pack 2.
You can upgrade Windows XP service pack 2 by installing plain service pack 3.
This will upgrade and improve functionality to your current installation to Windows XP.
There are alot of versions of Windows XP Service pack 3 but i recommend downloading an official version from Microsoft's downloads center through the link below.

To after download is complete, install the file. Installation takes about 10 to 30 minutes depending on your system specifications.
If your current installation of Windows XP has too many errors, installation of service pack 3 may not be successful.
The solution to this is to reinstall your Operating System (OS) using your OS installation CD, then install Service pack 3.
How ever, OS re installation will erase all your data in your system partition so back up all your data.

To download an official copy of Windows XP service pack 3, follow this link:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

Installing XP on a vista computer


Hi,
Before beginning please note the following:
All your data will be erased by the end of this process.
Also I recommend to switch to Windows 7 (instead of XP) as they are far better and faster than Vista and XP. If you can switch your XP for Windows 7 then you should do that.

However the decision is yours.

Nothing else should be done except to backup your data.
Then, insert the XP disc in your dvd drive and restart your computer. When the message "Press any key to boot from CD" appears press enter.

When the XP setup loads, select to format your hard drive and install a fresh copy of XP. Follow the on screen instructions and you will have XP on your system in about 30-45 minutes.

Problem regarding vista trnsformation pack


First thing i would like to share with you is :- Vista transformation pack is a collection of some Desktop Enhancement Tools.

So when you install the Transformation pack on your XP machine it will change your default themes/looks + On Boot screen you will see change + Some extra Gadgets on Desktop which will improve productivity / speed of your working. (Simply customisation of Shortcuts)

But dont forget that the underlying operating system is WINDOWS XP only and NOT VISTA.
It is just a change in the Appearance in windows Xp environment.

It feels / Look good but i will prefer to go for following download i feel it will more worth to try out rather than Vista
